Today we went there for a business lunch. The service was great (french/english speakers); great menu (mainly fish but also good alternatives if people do not like fish). We needed to go for some special wishes - one vegetarian and one customized dish; everything was handled in the best, professional and friendly way. The caffe gourmand was a great finish... More

..followed up with the most amazing service. Food was exquisite. The sesame tuna was divine and definitely save space for the creme brulé. A little bit out of the way but worth finding it.

We visited Lille for one day, taking the train from London. After visiting the birthplace of Charles DeGaule we searched for a lunch spot at around 1 pm. Quai 38 was just a 5 minute walk. This was one of the best restaurants we have eaten at in many years.

We had a confirmed reservation on August 4 through thefork.com. We took an Uber ride to the restaurant only to find a note on the door that said they were closed and on Holiday. Their Website and thefork.com showed no record of being closed. That is piss poor customer service!

Perfect evening with my boyfriend. We enjoyed every morsel of food for the 3 course dinner. Our french was not very good, the lady at the bar was kind enough to explain the whole menu to us! The decoration is quite pleasing the eyes and i had the best salmon there till date! I highly recommend!

We were looking for a place to have a seafood meal & we were very lucky to find such a great place such as Quai 38. The stuff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Then the food started to be served this was the knock out. Very good presentation and very very delicious. We had couscous à l'homard, dorade royale... More

From the moment my son and I walked in, noticeably English on another day of being English in Lille is an embarrassment, we were made welcome. We love great food and wine and were not disappointed. The oysters from Brittany were as plump as me but tastier. The razor clams and clams as entree were scummy. The St Pierre and... More
